[pagebreak] Great Scopes to Come
When you buy a mounting system for your rimfire, it's a good idea to think in centerfire terms. Most makers offer base-and-ring sets for drilled receivers, or rings that clamp on a dovetailed receiver, that are fully as sturdy and good looking as those made for big-game rifles. Talley (803-854-5700; talleyrings.com), for example, not only makes stylish clamp-on rings, but also offers them in different heights. It even offers different configurations to match the curvature of different receivers. The other top-end systems cost more, of course (about the same as you'd pay for good mounts for your deer rifle), but it's money well spent in terms of strength, accuracy and appearance.
